This documentary is a must watch for any woman considering labiaplasty:
The cutting off of inner labia by so many young women today is unnecessary surgery that I find objectionable. The inner labia plump up with blood during sexual arousal and is part of every woman's orgasmic response pattern.
What concerns me most is that these girls know nothing about the range of vulva styles. Many believe their genitals are "not normal" or that the surgery will somehow help them to have better sex. Or she is doing this to please her boyfriend who has grown up with images of women in porn.
However, a friend of mine who is a PhD educator had labiaplasty. She was in her late forties and was well aware of genital styles. As an informed consumer, I consider the trimming of her inner lips as body modification. She was fully aware that this elective surgery came with risks and was prepared for the healing process that took several months.
I believe surgeons have a moral duty to inform these young women that more than half of all women have extended inner lips. We are the norm. The "Clam shell" look is what porn stars get due to the erroneous belief that's what most men prefer. Not true. It is simply a fad that's been adopted by the Adult Industry. Once we stop hating and fearing human sexuality, all forms of genital surgeries including circumcision will become obsolete.
